The board of Waukesha-based Generac Holdings Inc. has elected two new directors to fill existing vacancies, the company announced Thursday.

Kathryn Roedel, a former executive at Select Comfort Corp., will fill a vacancy in the Class III directors and will have a term expiring at the 2018 annual meeting. Roedel is currently an advisory board member at Minneapolis-based BrainHealth Technologies. She previously served in supply chain, product and service roles at Select Comfort and GE Medical Systems.

Roedel replaces former Office Depot Inc. chief financial officer Barry Goldstein who retired from the board in 2015.

Dominick Zarcone, chief financial officer of Chicago-based LKQ Corp., will fill a Class II vacancy with a term expiring at the 2017 annual meeting. LKQ is a global distributor of vehicle parts and accessories. Prior to joining LKQ he was managing director and CFO at Baird Financial Group from 2011 to March 2015.

Zarcone fills a vacancy created by the departure of Cabela’s CFO Ralph Castner earlier this year.
